Mr Springfield soars away - RIP Pete Milne

This sms from Kobus Visage, Pete Milne's Springfield soaring buddy of recent years:
"Pete Milne passed away last nite peacefully in his sleep while on his bed listening to his music."
Hope to add more of Pete's chock a block history at a later stage, kinda sad at the mo. Our own legend.
The pic of Russ and Pete at our last Springfield slope session with ole Pete, just recently. Pretty damn good for 86!
"The celebration of Peter Milne's life will be on Tuesday 19th January at Point Yacht Club (Vetchies Pier) at 2pm. Dress Casual. Bring boards if you want to partake in the paddle out. Regards, the Milne and Payne families."

Go and soar amongst the eagles Pete. You were a true gentleman, a master craftsman and an inspiration to generations of modellers. Your presence on the slope will be sorely missed.
Rest in peace.
